The US President has suffered a string of public gaffes in the past month

Joe Biden has sparked a heated row between US commentators, as concerns continue to grow over his cognitive ability amid the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

In the last month alone Biden has publicly struggled during his speeches in Wisconsin and Virginia.

Speaking at a Brewery, Americans took to social media to criticise the US President as he made a series of verbal stumbles.

Biden struggled to read the teleprompter, mumbling: "And, by the way, it used to make the beer brewed here — (laughs) — it is used to make the brewed beer here in this refine — oh, Earth Rider, thanks for the Great Lakes."

Pressure is also mounting on the President over his stance on the ongoing conflict in the Middle East, after three US troops were killed by a drone attack in Jordan.

Biden told media following the attack that he "holds Iran responsible", but admitted we "don't need a wider war in the Middle East."

Former US President Donald Trump has hit out at Biden's "weak and surrendering" efforts towards the growing conflict, stating we are "on the brink of World War 3".

Discussing the President's stance, US Attorney Robert Patillo argued that Biden has been the "strongest" American politician in supporting Israel.

Patillo told GB News America: "President Biden asked for $14billion for support of Israel back in October. They haven't brought that to a vote yet. You have Republicans right now saying that the only way they will support a border security bill is if Israel surrenders to Hamas.

"On the other hand, President Biden has gone to Jerusalem. He has put his backing behind Netanyahu in the United Nations. He has clamped down efforts to call for a ceasefire by the international community. He has stood behind Israel hand in hand.

Patillo argued: "I think the the American Jewish community understands who their real friend is in this situation. As you look at the weak handed approach Republicans will take into the situation, it's almost a slap in the face to our Israeli allies in the Jewish community in the United States of America because they have said we will not fund unless you were willing to surrender."

US radio host Dan O'Donnell hit back at Patillo's comments, calling them "fundamentally not true".

O'Donnell fumed: "To characterise Republicans as saying that the Jews must surrender to Hamas is quite frankly one of the most insulting things I've ever heard. And unfortunately the facts on this are wrong.

"The contingency on border security was Ukraine funding. It was not Middle East funding."

O'Donnell continued: "However, I will agree with Robert that Biden has been stronger than I would expect the Democrats to be on the issue of Israel.

"He's been facing a whole lot of backlash in his speeches on this from protesters calling him 'Genocide Joe', but calling for a ceasefire and demanding that Israel agree to a ceasefire when that is exactly what its terrorist enemy wants, I would argue is not particularly strong on Israel."
